US Prez Barack Obama pushes for making new gun control law

Washington, April 4: US President Barack Obama pushed for making new gun control law as fresh chilling details of cold blooded killing of students in Newton school emerged.

Obama has travelled to Colorado to push Congress to pass stalled US gun control legislation.

Meanwhile, the US state of Connecticut was set to vote on its own sweeping new gun restrictions.

Among the Connecticut measures up for a vote are a ban on new high-capacity magazines and mandatory background checks on all gun purchasers.

Obama praised Colorado for passing strict new gun measures, despite its culture of gun ownership.

The president said that he came to Denver "because Colorado is proving a model for what's possible".

Last month, the western state imposed limits on the size of ammunition magazines and expanded background checks for gun buyers.
